Hazcom, Hazmat, Hazwaste and HAZWOPER: Navigating OSHA, DOT and EPA Chemical Compliance


10/5/23 10:00 am to 11:30 am CDT

Event Description

Does your company manufacture, package, transport, store, use and/or dispose of chemicals? If yes, this webinar applies to you! Chemicals play a vital role in the U.S. economy. However, some chemicals pose an environmental, health and/or safety risk during their chemical life cycles.

Whether you call them hazardous chemicals, hazardous materials, hazardous wastes or hazardous substances, these chemicals are often regulated by OSHA, the Department of Transportation, and/or the Environmental Protection Agency. In fact, the following chemical standards remain some of the most confusing regulations covering millions of companies nationwide:

  • 29 CFR 1910.1200 — OSHA’s standard on hazard communication
  • 49 CFR 171-180 — DOT’s regulations on hazardous materials
  • 40 CFR 260-262 — EPA’s standards on hazardous waste
  • 29 CFR 1910.120/1926.65 — OSHA’s standards on hazardous waste operations and emergency response

This webinar explores these four major sets of regulations to help you better navigate the basics of chemical compliance. The more you understand them, the easier, faster and less costly your compliance efforts may be. So don’t miss out. Register today!
